Fun DIY Activities to Keep Your Kids Entertained at Home
Unleash Their Creativity While Killing Boredom at the Same Time!
It’s year two of the pandemic and your little ones are getting more and more restless by the day. Not a day goes by that you can’t hear them breathe a sigh of boredom, or them saying, “I’m bored!”
Well, it’s about time you shake things up at home!
Crafts and painting projects are sure-fire ways to spice up their indoor lives. Or, if they’re feeling outdoorsy, setting up a camping zone in your backyard always gets kids excited.
Get ready to break out the coloring materials, paintbrush, scissors, strings, glue stick, boxes, paper plates, and let’s not forget, glitter! You and your kiddos are going to unleash your creativity while killing boredom all at once!
Here are 9 fun DIY activities to keep your kids entertained at home:
1. Tissue Box Monsters
What’s a unique idea in recycling your old tissue boxes? Turn them into tissue box monsters!
Have your kids color the boxes, place a googly eye or three on each monster, and use cardboard cutouts for the fangs. As soon as they’re done, turn it into a minute-to-win-it game by getting them to shoot as many pom-poms or crumpled paper balls into their monster’s mouth within 60 seconds.
2. Flight School
Why settle for paper planes when you can always let your imagination soar high? Take it up a notch by constructing a couple of cardboard targets for the planes to fly through. It’s like having your own target practice for kids!
3. Target Golf
Speaking of target practice, here’s another one to bring out the inner golfer in your children. Get a box, make entry holes, and place numbers on top of each hole. Allow everyone to hit a golf ball, and be sure to reward the one with the most scores.
4. Cardboard Box Coloring
This one’s most likely the easiest of the bunch. You’ll only need a set of crayons and a box large enough for your toddlers to fit in. Now you don’t have to worry about your walls getting some random graffiti!
5. Mermaid Tail
Just because it’s not Halloween yet doesn’t mean that your little girls can’t play dress-up. Allow them to be Ariel for a day and head off to an undersea adventure with this DIY mermaid tail! Get your tutorial here.
6. Race Track
If you think it’s unreasonable to spend a lot of money on a race track toy, here’s the perfect alternative. Build your own colorful race track with the kids by taping the floor with washi tape. Don’t forget the parking space!
7. Indoor Climbing Wall
If your kids don’t have time to be active outside, an indoor climbing wall should be able to help them sweat. For a step-by-step DIY guide, check out this fantastic video.
8. Story Stones
Here’s rock painting with a twist: Come up with a story using the characters your kids created on each stone. Let their imaginations flow through by having them take turns narrating the story.
9. Tin Can Bowling
Nothing says quality time with the family like a game of bowling at home. Gather some old tin cans, let your kids spray paint them, and stack them. Use rocks or rubber balls to knock those DIY cans down.
